Alternative art-rock outfit RÊVE have premiered their new music video for their track “Marionettes” via Mind Equals Blown. The song lives on their forthcoming debut album, La Marionnette, which is set to be released 9/20. Generally, the group’s music videos all link together to tell a bigger story, but for “Marionettes” they took a different approach thanks to chance meeting with a UK film director.
“Natasha Marburger of Beyond Illusion Productions in London was working on a story for a film and after hearing an early version of ‘Marionettes’ though a mutual friend, was inspired to make alterations inspired by the song and lyrics,” says vocalist Athena Hiotis. “It was a very humbling experience to work trans-atlantic on this project and to know that the song had such an influence on the story.”
